Hi I'm Camren

I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. I enjoy tennis, basketball and I love the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated high school and enjoyed playing sports. I am a region champion in tennis and grew up on the sport of basketball. I enjoy learning new skills and expanding my knowledge. During my senior year I was the VP of the Political Science club. My parents immigrated to the United States from South Africa a couple months before I was born. I have family living all over the world including New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, and England to name a few. I love to travel and spend time with my family. September 2017-19 I will be living my life in Scotland/Ireland as I serve a full time mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in this amazing church. My dad was as well and served his mission in Cape Town, South Africa, where he met my mom. My mom was converted at the age of 19. Growing up, going to church became the norm. I went because my parents told me to, and I didn't have a problem with that. I am very glad they did. I didn't fully understand what I was learning and why I was going to church every week until a later age. It wasn't until I was about 14 when I really started to think for myself and what I had in plan for my future. I started reading the Book of Mormon with more intent and praying with sincerity. What made the LDS church and its members stick out to me was the happiness that it is built upon. I constantly found out that the more I stayed close to the church and followed its teachings, the happier I became. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and is a guide to live a better life. I know that anyone who lives the standards that latter-day saints live by, will notice amazing changes in their life and blessings beyond measure.

How I live my faith

I have had many teaching callings and opportunities in my ward. I found myself constantly doing service around my neighborhood with the Boy Scouts. We volunteer at the food bank every year as youth around Thanksgiving time to donate and box up Thanksgiving food boxes for the families in need. Every week I go to my local Alzheimers care center to help pass out the sacrament and deliver a message and testimony to those amazing people. I have loved home teaching with my father every month to various families in my ward. I live my faith each and everyday by striving to lead by example. Everyone around us needs help in one way or another, so we can always keep busy by helping them. I always try my best to keep a positive and enjoyable attitude to help others be happy. I have found that the best way to live my faith and share this Gospel is to be a good example to everyone.
